Sizemore kicked off movie set after alleged sexual assault of girl

Actor Tom Sizemore has been accused of touching an 11-year-old girl's genitals, an incident that led to his removal from a movie set in 2003.

However, the actor was invited back months later to reshoot scenes for the film Born Killers after the girl's parents decided not to press charges, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Now 26, the former actress did not answer questions about the alleged incident but raised the possibility of taking legal action against Sizemore and her parents.

The 55-year-old actor, who appeared in a pornographic movie released in 2005 while he was in court-ordered drug rehabilitation, did not respond to requests from The Hollywood Reporter for comment.

But a number of cast and crew members of the film confirmed the actor, who has been arrested on domestic violence and drug charges, was kicked off the Utah film set of Born Killers in 2003 after the girl told her mother that the actor had touched her genitals.

The incident occurred near the end of production of the crime thriller during a photo shoot in which the girl had to sit on Sizemore's lap.

It was during this session that the girl, who had a small role in the movie, was "inappropriately touched" by the actor.

The young actress reported the incident to her parents the next day, who contacted the casting director Catrine McGregor.

Photos taken during the shoot were reportedly inconclusive but the film's crew was incensed when they learned about the incident.

"The little girl said what she said and we all thought, 'That f---ing sleazebag.' There was never any doubt," production assistant Roi Maufas told The Hollywood Reporter.

"He was this guy who was already known for making inappropriate comments, being drunk, being high. We're talking about consistent behaviour, just being 'Tom Sizemore' on set every day."

The producers of Born Killers claim they were angry about the incident, but lacking evidence and citing the parent's decision not to press charges, they invited Sizemore to film reshoots some months later.

The alleged incident occurred shortly before Sizemore was accused of assaulting his ex-partner, notorious Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss.

The alleged sexual misconduct follows an avalanche of accusations of sexual harassment and rape levelled against Hollywood figures including producer Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey.

Sizemore achieved fame in the 1990s in action films and dramas, including Point Break, True Romance, Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down and Pearl Harbor.

His career experienced a revival in recent years with roles in television series Shooter and Twin Peaks.

Sizemore's career has also been marred by arrests on domestic violence and drug charges, and he has also had a public battle with addiction.

Fairfax Media reported in 2005 that the actor had the starring role in a home-made porn movie that was released under the title The Tom Sizemore Sex Scandal.

"This is the maraschino cherry on the banana split of bad luck I have been having," the self-proclaimed sex-addict Sizemore said in a statement issued by Los Angeles-based sex film studio Vivid Entertainment.

There were also reports that he and co-star Val Kilmer had taken restraining orders out against each other while filming Red Planet in Australia in 1999.

Both actors and the movie's Australian producer Andrew Mason denied there was any dispute between the actors.

"They have shown enormous patience with the rigours demanded by both our locations and the substantial visual effects work and have at no time interfered in any way with the production," Mason told Fairfax Media.
